As part of a day-long series of events celebrating the history and community of Roxbury, on Saturday, April 28, the Madison Park Development Corporation and Boston Mayor Thomas M. Menino invite community members to participate in “Roxbury Memory Day” as part of a series of events that day called Our Dudley Square: Discover, Explore, Celebrate!
Past and present Roxbury residents are asked to bring their old photos and other documents to be scanned and archived by University Archives and Special Collections at UMass Boston as part of the Mass. Memories Road Show. (Photos will be returned immediately to their owners.) All are invited to participate in brief video interviews about life in Roxbury.
“Roxbury Memory Day,” will take place from 11 am to 3 pm at Hibernian Hall in Dudley Square.
All of the day’s events are free and open to the public. For more information, call 617-849-6335.
